Trakai Castle (also known as “Little Marienburg“) is a very popular tourist destination in Lithuania, the castle is an “Island Castle” located in the east of Lithuania in Lake Galvė (which has 21 small sized islands). Trakai Castle was first built in the 14th century and had several stages of construction, the castle was left to ruins around the 17th century and for 200 years it remained dormant. In the 19th century a series of reconstruction plans began to take place – which slowly refurbished the structure transforming it into a 15th century castle.
There is a beautiful wooden bridge which leads to the island.
The island’s trees and general appearance is at its best towards the end of summer.
